Rob died while serving others, and putting their needs before his own. As can be seen throughout Into Thin Air, the only reason Rob went back up to the summit was for Doug. When the storm hit making it difficult for the two of them to descend, Krakauer notes that “Hall, however, wouldn’t consider going down without Hansen” (Krakauer 24). At this point, Rob’s downfall may have been inevitable, but at least he was committed to staying with his client and friend. Although Doug’s ambition could have caused Rob’s death, he never even considered the possibility of leaving him on that mountain.
Evidently, McCandless had his mind set– he knew that his purpose in life strayed away from this conformist society. Similarly, many people know what they want to do with their life. However, these people differ from McCandless immensely as these people often never end up pursuing their dreams due to the fear of straying from the conformist society. Chris McCandless renders an admirable hero, because he acquired the courage, which many people lack, to both escape his oppressive household as well as pursue his purpose in

Brother showed the reader that he took pride in everything that he did with and without his brother. Finally, Brother pushes Doodle to his full potential.
Chris was also the kind of kid to always get good grades, without even trying to. I think Chris McCandless felt unfufilled in his life of privilege, and wanted to go out and experience life how he wanted to for awhile, and live freely. Chris may even still be alive today, had he been more prepared. Chris McCandless has always been a bit of a rebel. His spiritual awakening, has led him to quit society.

Given the situation, Elie’s outlook on life is not nearly as positive as Morrie’s. Like Morrie, though, Elie finds comfort in his father, the only family he has left. His father is what motivates him to keep fight and to stay alive when so many have already given up and succumbed to death. In fact, after his father’s death, he feels like nothing else is worth caring about (Wiesel 113). In way of religion, outlook on life, and the importance of family, there are many differences and similarities between the characters of Tuesdays with Morrie and Night.
McCandless Life Into the Wild’ is about a young man who rejects his conventional life to live in the wild ,Shaun Callarman states “I think that Chris McCandless was bright and ignorant at the same time, He had no common sense .He abandoned his family to go on an adventure to find himself happiness.He was dissatisfied with his life,he eschewed ambition and materialism in favor of living as close to nature and as far moved from society as he possibly could.He was alienated from his parents who could never understand him.Chris McCandless sought a more fulfilling existence in Alaska(Callarman,2016).

I personally think Chris was in over his head with his actions, that’s why he died, if he would have had more self-control and outdoor experience he would have survived. Almost any nature survivalist will know that before eating a plant, to make sure to check for all
He hadn’t done anything wrong to deserve such treatment from his community, yet as it says in paragraph forty-seven of the text, “Mr. Hooper [was] irreproachable in outward act, yet shrouded in dismal suspicions; kind and loving, though unloved, and dimly feared; a man never apart from men, shunned in their health and joy, but ever summoned to their aid in mortal anguish.” Due to the veil and the reactions of his peers, Father Hooper’s reputation is forever altered; tarnished by a black cloth draped over his
In Night, forgetting would be the equivalent to letting the Nazi’s win; no one would remember the pain, suffering and loss that went down during The Holocaust, and no one would remind those German soldiers of the things that they did and the amount of people that they hurt. They would have no remorse, and it would almost be like them getting a reward for starving and burning millions of people. Believing in this book was their first form of escape. They could have fled to a safer area, avoided all of this all together. But no one listened, and no one believed.
